I don't think of surrender as a negative action.
My friend didn't agree with me. (At first.) I believe they saw things from my point of view after a bit of time had passed.
My feeling is to just let go and let whatever is going to happen ...happen.
This is not an easy concept to grasp.
While trying to define this to myself I came across this beautiful song. It brought me to a place of just being.
What does the word surrender mean to you? I'd love to know.
